About this course
What makes places and landscapes different? What will happen if we continue to drain all our natural resources?
Geography is an exciting, dynamic subject that has, at its core, a concern for the integrated study of the Earths places, peoples, environments and societies. In these times of environmental and economic concerns, it is now more relevant than ever.
With its wide range of modules, opportunities for specialisation and a practical emphasis throughout, the Geography course at Worcester is a great way to learn about the world in which we live. There are numerous opportunities for fieldwork, both local and residential, and this is a distinctive feature of the programme. Resource provision is excellent, and includes river monitoring installations, 24-hour access computer rooms, a brand new digital mapping and survey suite, and a range of field mapping technology including a remote control helicopter with camera attachment.
The first year of the course offers an introduction to the breadth of the discipline, with fieldwork and practical activities featuring from the outset. The second and third years provide increasing opportunities for specialisation, with the content of many modules benefiting from staff research and consultancy activities. Throughout, you will find enthusiastic staff and a friendly and supportive learning environment. At the University of Worcester, you are not just another face in the crowd.
